How to read the value of Non-Linear Transformer ?

Hi there !

I know that we could make "modified" transformer for special purpose (with Vsec=5V for example). But, instead of make a new transformer, it might be more easier if we could know how to read the value of those transformer. For example, NLT_PQ_4_120 or NLT_PQ_4_10. To be narrowed, what is the meaning of 4_120 and 4_10 ?

Anyone ?

Re: How to read the value of Non-Linear Transformer ?

To understand the models you mentioned you need to understand XSPICE.  I suggest you use the virtual transformer instead because it is easy to change the turn ratio, you can double clicking on the component and enter what ever ratio you want.  This component is found  by selecting the menu PlaceàComponent

Group: Basic

Family: Basic Virtual

Component: TS Virtual

Hi,

 

The easiest transformer to work with is the 1P1S from the Transformer family.  This part allows you to double click and simply enter the primary to secondary turn ratio.  The non-linear transfromer is difficult to work with, you have to understand how the magnet core and coreless works to setup the turn ratio.
